Gardening Tips and Plant Care Blog
Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. If you want a blooming vibrant garden, then the time to kickstart the growing season is now!
Every flower garden will be different, but many of the common staples will appear in almost every Ohio garden.
We all love feeding birds, and this beloved hobby does not have to stop during the winter. Winter bird feeding is a discipline all its own and many birds rely on food from your feeders during the coldest months.
Begin the winter bird feeding process by noting which birds are coming to feed in your yard and how they differ from those that come in spring, summer, and fall. Research which types of foods those birds eat and start filling your bird feeders with the types of food that will attract the birds you want.
Anyone who has ever owned houseplants knows just how easy it can be to kill them by mistake. There are many ways you can kill a houseplant, including underwatering, overwatering, not giving it enough light, and leaving a growing plant in a pot that is too small. Either way, the result is the same: a dead plant and immeasurable disappointment.
Is your garden ready for winter? Cool air, crispy leaves, and weekends spent at pumpkin patches are already upon us. Snow and frigid chills are soon to follow!
The time to winterize your garden is now! Winterizing ensures that your soil is ready for the next growing season so that next year's plants and flowers will thrive. You can think of winterization as the closing chapter in your yearly gardening story.
This fall you will enjoy the fruits of your summer garden labor. From flowers to vegetables, there are hundreds of different plants you can grow right in your backyard.
You can even grow plants that are perfect for fall in your home garden. One of the most accessible fall plants is edible squash.
Edible squash is a great fall treat that not only adds an enchanting splash of yellow, orange, and green to your yard but also brings a tasty treat to your table that the whole family will love.
We all love the beautiful flowers that bloom in spring and summer, dazzling us with their vibrant colors and pleasant scents. However, too often forgotten are those stunning flowers that save their beautiful blooms for the late months of summer or early autumn. One of the most vibrant August blooms are Lycoris bulbs, also known as Dancing Ladies, Naked Ladies, Spider Lilies, the Surprise Lily, or Resurrection Lilies.
It’s summer. The sun is shining, the soil is warm, and a slight breeze is tussling your hair. Everything is perfect. Well, not everything. That new plant you bought in spring, the one that once filled you with joy and excitement, is now dwindling into a dry, brown mess.
What happened? You took care of your new plant the same as all the others, but this new plant is dying where the others thrive.
